What’s included in our £895 service?

We pride ourselves on offering the best value in the UK with no hidden costs and no compromise on quality or dignity. We want to be completely transparent about our prices so here’s everything that’s included in our direct cremation service.

Nationwide transportation

Collection from any hospital or mortuary in England or Wales to our crematorium.

A simple coffin

A simple environmentally-friendly coffin, made by British craftsmen.

Direct cremation

Individual and private cremation taking place at our crematorium. We’ll let you know the date and time in advance.

Scattering of the ashes

Have the ashes scattered in our crematorium’s Garden of Remembrance.

Additional Services

Listed below are our optional services, which will only be charged if required.

Delivery of the Ashes £91

We will hand deliver the ashes to you at your convenience in a sustainably-sourced British-made wooden urn with engraved nameplate.

Doctor’s Certification £82*

By law two doctors must certify the cause of death unless the coroner is involved. We are therefore required to charge this fee set by the British Medical Association. Our team will liaise with the doctors to allow the cremation to proceed as soon as possible.

Home Collection £250

Collection from any hospital or coroner is included in our standard fee. However collections from hospices, nursing homes or private residences require us to partner with a local funeral director which incurs this additional fee.

Pacemakers £100

Pacemakers and other battery-powered implanted devices must be removed before cremation can take place. We charge this additional fee for a qualified professional to certify removal if necessary.

Larger Clients £250

If the deceased is over 6 feet tall or weighs more than 200lbs (90kg or roughly 14 stone) then we have to order a custom coffin and use specialised equipment.**

* Due to COVID-19, the Doctor’s Certification fee has been temporarily reduced from £164 to £82 as only one doctor is required.

** Please Note: We are unable to accept anyone over 350lb due to our crematorium’s limitations.

    The team made everything so much easier for me, I can't thank them enough. My father's ashes were delivered on time and the urn itself is beautiful.
